New Play RADIO GALAXY to Hold Reading Starring Joey McIntyre, Lesli Margherita and More

Radio Galaxy, a new play by Michele Aldin Kushner, will be performed at invitation-only readings on Thursday, September 27 at 11am and 3pm and Friday, September 28 at 2pmat The Westside Theatre (407 W. 43rd Street). Radio Galaxy is directed by Mark Waldrop and produced by Margot Astrachan.

Tino is a 17 year-old science prodigy from a hard working, blue-collar family, who dreams of university and a career in astronomy. Tino's parents tried for so long to have a child, and finally were able through a sperm donor. Unexpectedly, the biological father, Raju, an astrophysicist and academic, enters Tino's life. Raju and his wife Daya have a life-altering request of Tino. The class and racial tensions provoked by the stakes and potential risks of the request spark conflicts between the two families as Tino, and his dreams hang in the balance. But so does the life of a child.

Radio Galaxy readings will feature Joey McIntyre (Wicked, Tick, Tick Boom, New Kids On The Block), Lesli Margherita (Matilda, Dames At Sea), Hari Dhillon (Disgraced, "Holby City") and Nandita Shenoy (Washer/Dryer, Trouble Cometh).

"Radio Galaxy explores family in a most thoughtful but also heart stopping way," said producer Margot Astrachan. "The play brings up insightful and thought provoking questions such as: What does it mean to be a father? What determines fatherhood? And can we overcome our prejudices? My hope is that the play will be the catalyst for insightful conversations about love and the family unit."
